  • Salt Pond Safaris introduce people of all ages to the wonders of salt ponds. Using a 30-foot seine net, we catch a variety of aquatic creatures for participants to explore. Children enjoy hands-on experience with salt pond ecology. Prepare to get wet and sandy! Safaris last about 1.5 hours. There is a short walk on a flat trail to the pond. Minimal shade. Bring your own sunscreen, bottled H20, and insect repellent. Children must be accompanied by an adult. Please arrive least 10 minutes early to check in--we don't want to miss you! Bathroom facilities are located in the parking lot.
